VIP campgrounds OPEN at 7:00 AM on Thursday, August 17, 2017

All campgrounds CLOSE at 7:00 PM on Sunday August 20, 2017

Managing traffic is the closest thing we know to rocket science, trust us. We have three GA entrances – which we call Wolvebooths – as well as an exclusive VIP Wolvebooth for VIP ticket holders only. In order to get everyone into the festival as quickly as possible, we carefully balance the number of vehicles coming into each Wolvebooth. Please take the suggested routes below, and obey all law enforcement directions, as well as electronic message boards that may post an alternative route.

What determines where you camp? The Tollbooth in which you enter, and the time you arrive.

Does this mean some people get “better” camping spots than others? Yeah, it does. Life is unfair. But no matter where you camp, you’re close to bathrooms, water, security and medical staff. And keep in mind that a closer campsite doesn’t mean a better view of the stage. Its important that you arrive early.

It’s just a shorter walk, and the exercise doesn’t hurt. Furthermore, we know from experience that amazingly great times are had in every corner of the campgrounds. Who knows, you could be camped next door and find new friend
